I felt weak and pathetic
Scared to face my demons
Scared to challenge my rivals
But one day reality came knocking at my door,
Smacking me in the face real good.
Slapping real sense into my brain,
Jerking me in to my right mind.
It was time to face reality
Time to stand tall and proud
Time to face my demonds
Time to challenge my rivals.
I was no longer the scared little girl
I was now a fighter, a survivor
You could knock me down,
But I would still raise again
You could pull the mat from underneath my feet,
But I would still stand tall,
You might stop my progress,
But you couod never stop my determination to progress.
